"I am different because my mind has always seemed to function in a slightly different way from most others. I once felt weird, but now I see that it is a gift. The way I see the world, my inner dialogue, thrives on creativity and sees beauty in everything-- it is so connected to what I feel my purpose is in this life. Now I celebrate my uniqueness."

I've started a Flickr group called "The Beauty of Different," where photographers (amateur and pro alike) are invited to publish self-portraits of themselves, and declare what their beautiful different is. If you have a Flickr account, I invite you to join and share your beautiful different. And feel free to add your website, Facebook or Twitter accounts on your submission -- I'd love to give you some link love if I feature you here on the site.
